The nobles were stunned. That technique was at least at the small success level of a common grade technique. Hauk was at the second or even third year level, a genius indeed.
“A 16-year-old at such an advanced level. Youve raised quite the successor Storm.” Family Head Bai chuckled.
Storm beamed, looking off at his son proudly.
A fair skinned Asian girl stood after Hauk took his seat. She strode forward with elegant steps, her features beautiful and her demeanor domineering.
The room seemed to be washed with a white light that flowed from the young ladys flowing sundress. She stood even shorter than Delia, and her eyes shone a violet that was only more pronounced because of her swaying jet-black hair.
A translucent compass lit her feet as she used it to float onto the stage.
The nobles received their second shock of the night and it was Bais turn to smile this time.
“The Feng Shui Compass, Bai?! Where have you been hiding this gem?” Duco spoke out, her silver eyes shining to disbelief.
The compass beneath the beautiful girls feet grew in size to perfectly fit the elevated platform before she bowed.
“My name is Bai Meiying, I look forward to the coming years,” She said in a sweet voice. Her compass shrunk and guided her back to her seat where she sat still smiling.
Although an understanding of the elements is considered great within the martial world, an understanding of something more abstract like the compass Meiying used supersedes its difficulty by several folds. This is because, although will is abundant, it is also limited. Elements are easier to understand because their existence is infinite and supported by the will of everything.
However, a Feng Shui compass has limited will supporting it because it is a practice only seen in a small portion of the world. For a child as young as Meiying to carve out a place for herself in the will of the Feng Shui compass was unheard off.
“To be competing for the will of the compass against experts well beyond her years… And to be able to expand it as far as she did… She is without a doubt a future pillar of our alliance.” Storm spoke in disbelief. He had been confident that his son would be most impressive, but it seemed that he had counted on too much.
The youths came up one after another, displaying talents far beyond their years.
Fero Duco displayed his shapeshifting ability. His will of the eagle, wolf and bear shook all in attendance. To understand not one, but three wills at such a young age was simply outrageous.
Kami Mayumi was equally as impressive. His unceasingly calm demeanor as he pulled on his bow and arrow was unmatched through at least fourth years.
A chill filled the room as he pierced target after target. Even his cold father opened his eyes and gave him a curt nod before Mayumi returned to his seat.
Afterwards, a small boy with black framed glasses walked to the stage. He was meek and frail, but his golden eyes shone with a keen intelligence.
“Caligraphy!” He called out in a soft shout.
A kneeling table materialized along with a rolled piece of thick paper and a glass container of ink with an elegant brush leaning within it.
The boy kneeled and set himself.
In the next moment, his meekness disappeared. His eyes grew sharp as he opened the paper and lifted the brush in one swift motion.
The nobles held their breath, all think the same thing,The will of words.
The boy began writing with strokes as sharp as his eyes. His brow furrowed as he leaned in with the utmost concentration. A soft wind seemed to sweep the room as he finished his final swipe of the brush.
“My name is Pertinacis Sapientia. Today I give you this word: Genius.”
“How bold.” A mentor responsible for caring for the inner libraries took a keen interest in Pertinacis.
The ceremonial hall washed over in a radiant light as Pertinacis turned over his work for show. In that instant, everyone felt the will of his word. The overbearing pursuit of knowledge and the perseverance to achieve the ultimate goal.
“Truly genius. To convey emotion and by extension change the will of those around you is something even 5th and 6th year students of Focus academy cant do. Mayumi reached this realm partially by washing us over with his cold intent. But, Pertinacis has his feet firmly planted in this realm. Truly astounding.” The headmaster spoke his words of appreciation.
The handsome man who wore the crystal framed glasses smiled at his son as Pertinacis walked off the stage.
Pertinacis walked to the steps at the end of the hall before respectfully bowing and continuing. He handed the paper to his father before heading back to his seat.
“Well done.” Family Head Sapientia spoke softly.
Delia broke out of her concentration to stand once Pertinacis sat. Brown-gold hair flowing, her eyes sharpened.
She wore a beautiful black skirt that had layered folds. Her black stockings were stretched by her toned legs and ended in black flats. The neck of her pale pink blouse wrapped around her shoulders lower than usual, revealing the silver necklace that graced her collarbone.
A sword materialized in her hand as ice petals blossomed from her feet. Her pale green eyes iced over into a cold blue. Unlike others… She had no need to call upon the creation formation.
The only nobles that remained seated were Kami and Patia-Neva, but even Kamis usual calm demeanor was blown over as his eyes snapped open.
Duco sucked in a breath. “The will of ice manifested changes within her…”
The nobles were stunned. Although Fero had called upon the will of the eagle, bear and wolf, the changes were only illusory. The eagle for example, partially increased his eyesight and agility, the bear his strength, and the wolf his instincts and speed. But Delia was becoming a whole new person.
Her hair instantly turned into a bright white. Her skin paled, becoming even fairer than Meiyings. Her body shone a bright light before bursting out within her. A layer of frost covered the whole of the ceremony hall.
A wall of ice emanated outward as she lightly swung her sword, causing fierce ripples within the barrier.
Delia finally closed her eyes, lowering herself to the ground. The cold winds subsided, reducing the chill of the guests in the hall. Her hair returned to its usual golden brown and her eyes warmed to its usual pale green and hazel color.
Her sword disappeared as she returned to her seat.
Hauk was the first to compliment her. “Youre amazing Delia. And here I thought I was going to be the best.” Admiration, jealousy and attraction colored his blue eyes.
Meiying grabbed Delias arm and pulled her closer. “Stay away Hauk, I can smell your breath from over here.”
Delia smiled warmly and looked up at her father who gave her a nod of approval.
“Im confused though, why are there 7 seats here?” Meiying whispered into Delias ear.
A complicated expression flashed on Delias full features before they were interrupted by the whooshing of one 6 doors opening.
Clapping resounded from the door. Dyon stood with his hands clasped together, clearly dressed much too informally. His dress shirt flowed behind him and his crisp white shirt clung to his lean torso as he strolled into the room towards Delias table without a care in the world.
His voice sounded through the quiet hall. “I didnt open the door earlier because I didnt want to interrupt such a spectacular performance. Why didnt you tell me you could get even more beautiful?”
Dyon stopped in front of Delia and Meiying before he grabbed Delias hand and placed her identity card within it.
Dyon let go as his eyes flashed with interest when he looked over at the beautiful Asian girl holding onto Delia.
“Wow, you have beautiful friends too.” Dyons laughter filled the hall as if oblivious to the pressure that was building on the stage behind him.
Back in the control room Libro shook his head. “A monster… simply a monster.”
